Development Version

Gentoo Linux (and other Portage-based distros)

A live ebuild can be found in the interactive-fiction overlay. It is accessible with the “layman” utility (app-portage/layman). If you don't already have layman installed, please read its documentation on how to configure your make.conf before adding overlays. The package name is “games-engines/qtads-9999”.

Everyone else

To obtain the current development version, you need to have Git installed, and run:

git clone git://

To retrieve updates, run the following from inside the “qtads” directory:

git pull

If you don't have Git installed, you can also automatically generate and download a *.tar.gz snapshot of the source code.

You can also browse the web-based interface of the Git repository.
